Decorating Ideas For Your Walk In Closet
A walk in closet is a very large closet that is big enough for a person to enter and is often as large as a small room. This kind of closet differs from normal closets which, while also used for storage, are not large enough to enter. You can even treat your walk in closet like an extension of your bedroom by using decor to liven up your dressing space. Here are some ideas for you. Task lighting is essential in closets, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be decorative. Hang sconces, pendants or track lighting to illuminate your walk-in or add baseboard lights to display shoes and boots on the floor. Use lightbulbs that emulate natural daylight to see clothing and shoes in their truest colors. Be creative with storage by using decorative hooks, store fixtures and a variety of storage boxes, bins and baskets to hold everything from belts to scarves. Shoes, scarves and handbags are already decorative and beautiful on their own when organized and displayed out in the open. Hatboxes and fabric shoeboxes are practical and stylish ways to hide clutter and add color to your racks and shelves. Hang decorative shelves for your favorite pair of heels and display jewelry on elegant frames backed with screen or perforated hardboard.
Wall space need not be bare in a walk in closet. A fabric-faced bulletin board makes an attractive place to host fashion photos clipped from magazines to prompt outfit ideas. Hang framed covers of fashion magazines or artwork on blank walls, or hang formal wear and heirloom jewelry for a personalized closet design. A simple wallpaper panel or beveled mirror may be all you need to transform your closet into an elegant walk-in.
